Hair loss in Men Treatment

Losing hair is a common thing nowadays. There was a time when men began to experience hair loss by the age of 50, but nowadays, guys are creeping towards baldness as early as their 20s. This condition is termed Early Baldness. It has been found that a person in this grade can become bald in just 2 to 4 years. The hair loss can be gradual, progressive, and unnoticeable, but mostly it is sudden and severe.

Every second guy is suffering from mild to extreme hair loss in the present day. The hair loss makes a man appear older than his actual age by shifting the face’s balance to the forehead. It concerns the person’s feeling of attractiveness and self-esteem.

Though some men flaunt their bald heads, others may feel embarrassing. In some conditions, men take hair loss badly and get highly distressed about it, up to the extent of going into distress. Also, some people start wearing wigs, which makes their situation even more harmful. Wigs make them self-conscious as well as cause irritability. Wigs even improve hair loss. Hence, it is needed to consult with the best dermatologist and find hair loss causes and the best hair loss treatment for you!

Environmental factors, such as poor nutrition, stress, and hairstyling practices, can also influence hair loss. A diet lacking in essential nutrients can contribute to weakened hair follicles, making them more susceptible to shedding. Excessive stress, both physical and emotional, can disrupt the hair growth cycle and accelerate hair loss. Hairstyling practices that involve tight hairstyles, heat styling tools, or chemical treatments can damage the hair and lead to breakage and thinning.

Managing hair loss in men often involves a combination of preventive measures and treatment options. These may include lifestyle changes (e.g., a balanced diet, stress management), topical medications (e.g., minoxidil), oral medications (e.g., finasteride), low-level laser therapy, and hair transplant surgery.

It is important for men experiencing hair loss to consult with a healthcare professional or a dermatologist specializing in hair loss. They can provide a proper diagnosis, assess individual factors, and recommend appropriate treatment options based on the severity of the hair loss and the individual’s goals and preferences.

Causes of Hair Loss in Men

Hair loss in men, also known as male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia, can be attributed to several causes:

  • Genetic Predisposition
    The most common cause of hair loss in men is genetic inheritance. If a man has a family history of male pattern baldness, particularly among male relatives on either side of the family, it increases the likelihood of experiencing hair loss.
  • Hormonal Factors
    Hormones play a role in male pattern baldness. Specifically, the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), derived from testosterone, binds to hair follicles and leads to their miniaturization. Over time, affected follicles produce thinner and shorter hair strands until they stop producing hair altogether.
  • Age
    Hair loss tends to increase with age. As men get older, the growth phase of the hair follicles becomes shorter, leading to thinner and less dense hair. This gradual thinning is a natural part of the aging process.
  • Medical Conditions and Medications
    Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, scalp infections, and autoimmune diseases, can cause hair loss in men. Additionally, certain medications used to treat conditions like cancer, high blood pressure, depression, or arthritis may have hair loss as a side effect.
  • Poor Nutrition
    Inadequate nutrition, specifically deficiencies in iron, zinc, biotin, and other essential vitamins and minerals, can contribute to hair loss in men. A balanced diet that includes essential nutrients is crucial for maintaining healthy hair.
  • Stress
    Excessive physical or emotional stress can trigger temporary hair loss in men. This condition, known as telogen effluvium, causes hair follicles to enter a resting phase prematurely, resulting in shedding of hair after a few months.
  • Hairstyling Practices
    Certain hairstyling practices, such as excessive use of heat styling tools, tight hairstyles (like ponytails or braids), and chemical treatments (such as perming or straightening), can cause damage to the hair follicles and lead to hair loss.
  • Alopecia Areata
    Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system harms the healthy hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.
  • Male Pattern Baldness
    If you are experiencing hair loss problems in an ‘M-shaped’ or ‘U-shaped’ pattern, it is similar to male pattern baldness. In some cases, the hair loss starts from the top side. It is either hereditary, hormonal, or both. It is also called Androgenetic Alopecia.
  • Trichotillomania
    In this situation, a person feels the urge to pull out hair from his scalp, eyebrow, and other body areas.
  • Infection
    Various scalp diseases like ringworm also affect hair loss. That is usually observed in children. Low diet, excessive weight loss, and an unhealthy lifestyle are also the reasons behind hair loss.
  • Chemotherapy
    A man can experience progressive or climactic hair loss during Chemotherapy, though temporary. The hair regrows in a few months! Many other medicines are also responsible for the loss of hair.
  • Thyroid
    Serious & prolonged hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can also appear in hair loss in males. The loss is diffuse and includes the entire scalp rather than particular regions. Besides here, various other diseases arouse hair loss.

Available Treatment For Hair Loss in men

If the hair loss is temporary or because of any disease, Hair loss can cure it by treating it. But, for other situations, it is needed to get a hair rejuvenation treatment. Some of the useful remedies for hair loss/ baldness in men given by AWISH Clinic are:

  • Medication
    Two FDA- certified hair fall medicines are Minoxidil and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. Minoxidil is rubbed on the scalp and applied by both men & women. 5-alpha reductase inhibitors is used in pill form and prescribed for men only.
  • Hair Transplant
    In this procedure, the hair is plucked out from a body region and transplanted to the bald area. This way, you can stop hair loss permanently. Although there are two hair transplantation techniques, i.e., FUT and FUE, we use FUE only! That is so because the FUE method does not leave a permanent scar behind.
  • Scalp Micropigmentation
    This process is used when you don’t want any hair transplant procedure. In this method, natural pigments are used at the top of your scalp to look and feel real hair follicles.
  • Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
    Low-Level Laser Light involves laser light to increase the scalp’s blood flow and increase hair growth.

It’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional or a dermatologist specializing in hair loss to determine the most suitable treatment options based on individual circumstances. They can provide personalized recommendations, monitor progress, and adjust treatments as needed to achieve the best possible outcomes in managing hair loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Hair loss in men, specifically male pattern baldness, is primarily caused by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors. Genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances (such as the influence of dihydrotestosterone or DHT), aging, certain medical conditions, medications, poor nutrition, stress, and hairstyling practices can contribute to hair loss in men.

Hair loss is quite common in men, with male pattern baldness affecting a significant portion of the male population. It can start as early as the teenage years and becomes more prevalent with age. By the age of 50, more than half of all men experience some degree of hair loss.

While it may not be possible to prevent hair loss entirely, certain preventive measures can help slow down the progression. Maintaining a balanced diet, avoiding excessive heat and chemical treatments, practicing good scalp hygiene, managing stress levels, and protecting the hair from sun damage can contribute to healthier hair and potentially delay hair loss.

Yes, there are several treatment options available for hair loss in men. These may include topical minoxidil (Rogaine), oral finasteride (Propecia), low-level laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, and hair transplant surgery. The choice of treatment depends on the individual’s specific condition, preferences, and desired outcomes. Consulting with a healthcare professional or a dermatologist specializing in hair loss is recommended to determine the most suitable treatment plan.

The timeline for seeing results from hair loss treatments can vary. It is important to note that hair growth is a slow process, and patience is necessary. With topical minoxidil, noticeable results may take several months of consistent use. Finasteride may require several months of use to see visible improvements. Low-level laser therapy and PRP therapy may also require multiple sessions to achieve desired results. Hair transplant surgery typically shows noticeable improvements after several months as the transplanted hair grows.

Hair loss treatments, like any other medications or procedures, can have potential side effects. Common side effects of minoxidil and finasteride may include scalp irritation, itching, or temporary shedding. It is important to follow the instructions and guidelines provided by healthcare professionals when using these treatments. Other treatments such as laser therapy and PRP therapy generally have minimal side effects. Hair transplant surgery carries the risk of minor surgical complications and a recovery period.

While male pattern baldness is a chronic condition and complete reversal may not be possible for everyone, various treatment options can help slow down hair loss, stimulate hair regrowth, and improve the overall appearance of the hair. The effectiveness of treatment varies among individuals, and consulting with a healthcare professional or a dermatologist specializing in hair loss can provide personalized guidance based on individual circumstances.
